CC3C Colored Crackle

Dear scrappers,
Finally I get to publish this project. I have been in such a hurry lately, but I am taking a few minutes to publish my latest project:
A modified Kaiser crafts tray for my husband to put his stuff when arriving home everyday...
I used Graphic 45 papers, and many Tim Holzt goodies (distress paints, inks, crackled paint, and Ide-Ology 3d embellishments).
I got inspired by many of the CC3 curiosity crew, who outdid themselves and gave me so many ideas...
CC3C 14: Colored crackle
Linda is being so great to host this challenges every 15 days.
Here the final product:

Some close-ups

The technique is meant for non-porous surfaces, by it kind of work beautifully on the clock faces...

Sitting on his side of our vanity...

From about...
I used brads without the prongs to label each compartment...

Wonderful technique...
This challenge is being sponsored by the the Funkie Junkie

And don't forget to buy a copy of CC3 from Tim Holtz himself, very nicely signed Here
BTW, I made a snapguide of this project here

Have fun joining this creative challenge,
